Non directly to the point, but one thing that could help is also moving from office documents to a format that is more vcs-friendly; I have collected a couple of links to the point at http://www.trueelena.org/computers/articles/restructuredtext_for_fiction.html#further-readings and expecially http://tadhg.com/wp/2009/07/12/moving-from-word-processors-to-restructuredtext/ from a (tech-friendly, admittely) writer who did exactly that move. One thing that I suspect could help less tech-friendly writers is to have some integration for VCSes in a writer's editor or in some text editor without the complexity of a full IDE. Maybe reText would be a good candidate. http://sourceforge.net/p/retext/home/ReText/ -- Elena ``of Valhalla'' _______________________________________________ vcs-home mailing list email@example.com http://lists.madduck.net/listinfo/vcs-home
